Are the Leafs pulling off good moves?
Mon, November 24, 2008

The Maple Leafs have traded Carlo Colaicovo and Alex Steen to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for forward Lee Stempniak.

Stempniak, 25, a native of West Seneca, N.Y., scored 27 goals two seasons ago.

This season, he has three goals and 10 assists through 14 games.

Is this a good move for the Leafs? Have your say in our forum.

The leafs biggest problem is that they are over exposed, do any of the Fans realize that not a lot of players want to play in Toronto, an example is Matts Nasland,didn't hear any news about trying to sign him,good price,quality player,but does not want to go to the fish bowl, and their are a lot of quality players that just say no. Over exposed and a glut of news on this team, to much criticism, to many opinions, you (the fans) are your own worst enemy.

Ron Wilson, good luck this season --- you're going to need it!

Why give up a SECOND round and a FIFTH roumd draft choice for a 172 lb 3 goal scorer? Doesn't it make more sense to keep draft picks and build for the future? Why pay a guy $4M a year, 9x more than he was making the previous year in the AHL? Is JFJ still pulling off these deals or is someone whispering advice in Cliffhanger's ear. These are strange moves bordering on the incompetent.

the maple Laffs are the most boring team in the whole league.They just got a player from Montreal who just scored 3 goals and had 6 assists over 27 games.Why him?Fletcher go back to the States where you belong.I can hardly wait to watch the leafs miss the playoffs again this year.

Are the Laffs minus Sundin, Tucker, Razor, possibly McCabe a better team with Mayers, Cujo, Haggman and Finger? In my view the answer is NO. The new players aren't any better than the departing ones. However, the major factor is that there is no depth in the Laffs' org. There are no Corey Price's ready to step forward. Instead, Laffs will expect players like Williams, Devereaux and Tlusty to pick up the slack. They aren't capable. Its scary to think of the score against Mtl, Pittsburg, Detroit etc. when the best that Laffs can ice as the 1st team is Stajan, Antropove, Poni, Kaberle, Finger and Toskala. There isn't a single team in the NHL that has a worse starting line up. Then to go deeper into the roster and find players like Carlo and White as the hope for the future. Wow!

While changes were needed, its disappointing to see a guy like Finger who was playing in the AHL a year ago April, who has spent most of his career in the ECHL, signed for $4M/year. TO will eat this guy alive. Not because he is a bad guy but because he was ruined with a contract too rich for him to live up to. He could be playing in the AHL again by next April.

Cliff Hanger is Over the Cliff on the Finger deal.Shades of JFJ all over again.This poor Finger guy will have so much pressure on him to live up to his paycheck that he will wilt under the spotlight and turn into another McCabe.They should have gone after Ryder from Montreal who I think signed for less money with Boston.It's going to be another long season for us Leaf fans.

What the hell is going on a player who is even contumplating this offer should not be here!! Gillis is going to have understand HIS team is not going to make playoffs for two years even if he gets two Matt Sundins!!!.....excuse me Mr.Nonase could you think of abetter offer for M.S?....well son if i were GM I would offer him twenty mil. for one year cause with that great attitude we would ALMOST make #8. Does anybody remember MARK??? Mark somebody who should up for a paycheck????????

Oh Oh! Fletch is making deals as if he were JFJ. Why did he allow himself to be Fingered when a guy like Brad Stuart signs for about the same money. What is galling to the Laffs' supporters is that Laffs' mgt overpays and thereby builds up third stringers who can't possibly live up to the expectations. If they wouldn't pay these guys so much there would be fewer complaints from fans. I thought Cliffhanger knew what he was doing but after he got Fingered there is no doubt in my mind that he isn't the one who is assessing these players. He is listening to his scouting staff. Big Mistake.

No one would be calling Sundin overrated if it weren't for him not waiving his no-trade clause. And really, why should he have? So Fletcher can overpay those guys that he'd get in return as well? And I wouldn't call him selfish if he took a $5.5M contract. Look now, $10M. I think he was pretty generous. Only now is everyone getting mad because it's obvious no one is worth $10M, but you don't have to be jealous.

That's all this is. Jealousy, and some selfish fans. And yes, "Voskala". Coming from someone who apparently has an opinion? I'll give you an opinion when you learn how to type.

Speaking of spewing....

Pete you fall into the numpty category. Ever bother to check how to spell peoples' names? ...LINDROS...

And get a grammar book to see if you should be using there, their, or they're...

As for the Koskala typo...you couldn't even get that one right who is VOSKALA, pea-brain??? Glad I'm not Ken having you stick up for me.
